Afternoon Tea with naughty sheep?! An experience like no other… 🐑

Located in Scotland, you can now book “Tea with Naughty Sheep” on Airbnb. It’s a 1 and a half hour experience, where you will have afternoon tea in the beautiful fields of Scotland, by a stone farmhouse. 

You’ll be accompanied by two Herwick sheep, that will join the afternoon tea party for snuggles and mischief. The sheep even have their own spread of food on the table! After the afternoon tea, you can go back to the barn and say goodbye to the naughty sheep… and if you’re lucky you might even be able to give their new baby lamb a bottle of milk before exploring the rest of Scotland!
